When Wesley Snipes was indicted last year on Federal tax evasion charges, he was in Africa, Namibia to be precise, filming The Gallowwalkers. He decided of course to stay and finish the film before turning himself in.
See our previous coverage at the link below:
So what was this film? Initially the press had it all wrong. They were saying it was a cowboy film. Well they were only half right. You see, this film is about a gunman who has a curse. Whoever dies by his hand returns from the dead. The film is about the gunman trying to find help in disposing of the undead permanently.
Previously called The Wretched, and starring Chow Yun Fat, the film went through a redesign and recast after Chow backed out. The poster below was the initial design when Chow was aboard.
After Chow left, they needed another action star, and I guess to them Wesley fit the bill. After all, he was awesome in the Blade films. Wesley plays the lead of course, and from his costumery, he looks to play the part well. I just hope he gets to work in some of his martial arts somehow.
There is also a prequel comic coming out, with cover art done by Timothy Bradstreet. You can see this below.
Pretty awesome, eh? This film is still slated for a 2008 theatrical release, though with Snipes' trial starting in October of this year, it is uncertain how that will affect the film, if at all. Stay tuned for more on this film as we get it!
